Stacking the Shelves #12

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's @ Tynga's Reviews. It's a chance to showcase all the books we bought, won, and received for review-- whether they're ebooks or physical books.
BEST WEEK EVER: I almost peed my pants when I got the acceptance email for  The Wolves of Midwinter *squeals* SO EXCITED. I can honestly say, this moment is the highlight of my 8-month blogging career.
Would I have thought, 8 months ago, that blogging would lead me to get an ARC of an Anne Rice book?! My idol favorite author?!?! I woulda been like, nah..not me. So yeah, *fangirl moment* So frickin' awesome!

So yeah, to celebrate I bought some kick ass books. The used bookstore near me was having a 50% off sale! So I got Blue Bloods, The Winter's Tale, and Artemis Fowl 2 for 5$!! :o I do need to slow down on buying new books though, I want a chance to preen at the covers and enjoy reading them..I'm getting a bit overwhelmed instead. o_O

But I'm super thrilled about all these new YA releases: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Beautiful and the Cursed. AND I'm finally gonna see what all the hype is about: Shadow & Bone, Poison Princess. All in all, it definitely was my best week ever in book blogging. :$
